(Newser) – Johnny Quinn found himself yesterday in a position we can all relate to: On the wrong side of a locked door. But the door in question was to one of Sochi's now-storied bathrooms, and Quinn is an American bobsledder and former NFL player in possession of more than a few well-developed muscles. The story does not end well for the door: "With no phone to call for help, I used my bobsled push training to break out," Quinn tweeted, along with a photo of the demolished door. "What's left isn't quite a Johnny Quinn-shaped hole but it did the job," notes Sean Newell at Deadspin.
